Stirling Moss dead: Former F1 driving legend dies aged 90 after long battle with illness

Stirling Moss sadly passed away in the early hours of Sunday, his wife confirmed. Lady Moss was at his bedside as he died in their house in Mayfair. She had nursed him through a long illness.

Lady Moss said: “He died as he lived, looking wonderful.

Moss took part in his first professional race in 1948 when he was just 18 years old.
